Holy Moly

Country Dozen Reward Eggs

Don't forget my DOUBLE Country Dozen Reward Points End Today!

How much stuff do you think a person can cram in a closet? Or under a bed? I mean is that not what a bed skirt is for? To hide stuff. We are having the carpet replaced in our bedroom and the spare room with new tile that looks like wood.I can't wait. But holy moly we have stuff stacked everywhere now, I really need to purge. What is hard is looking at stuff that was Eric's when he was little (his first backpack) or things that we had planned to pass onto Grandkids, that we won't have now.

What do you do with that kind of stuff?  We can not agree on what to do with the spare room? Ideas? Jeff says shelves for storage and I am not thinking I want that kind of look, but we really do  not need to set it up as another bedroom necessarily, I would love to move the house computer and desk in there as a den kinda idea. Thoughts? What would I even look up on Pinterest? Spare Room? Extra Room?

How many pairs of shoes do you think I have? How about jeans? Oh and purses...although every time Jeff comments on how many "handbags" I have I giggle...he says handbag...that is so British right? and I am the Canadian one.

Oh well I better get back to helping, did I tell you we are painting too?

Color Me Happy - Flowers

Color Me Happy Flowers Diana Gibbs Stampin' Up!

There is a fun stamp set that is available to go along with the new Stampin' Blends and you can get it in a bundle that makes 16 cards. I have been working on the cards and I do each one a bit different. Which do you like better? Card 1: I added blue all around the background and colored the flowers  like the sample, I did add some yellow to the flower centers and I did put the flowers on the other side of the card. I added a few black dots here and there as well.

Card 2: This one I added more colors to the flowers than the sample.

Card 3: This one I added a little blue around the edges and added more color in the flowers.

Card 4: This one I put blue all around the edges and made the flowers like the sample. I added some Rich Razzleberry dots here and there as well.

I did however add the gold foil tape to the side of the card as I found that easier to do.

If you want to order this bundle, it's easy, just join my team today and you can get it in your kit. But don't forget October 15th is the last you will be able to do this until the Stampin' Blends and this bundle are available for everyone.

Eggs for doz

Anyone that knows me knows that I am a little bit superstitious, I told Jeff last night "you might still find me in bed when you get home from work, tomorrow is Friday the 13th"...ha!  But I am up, I just won't make any major decisions today or take any long road trips. I am sure they also have some scary movie starting today too, that seems to be the thing.

So to make today lucky I am going to have Double Country Dozen Reward points!  Yay!!!

Bella & Friends

Bella & Friends Diana Gibbs Stampin' Blends

This cute card is for my sweet friend Char who is in the hospital, she has been there a couple weeks and will be there for a few more weeks, I finally got to go see her today and I have missed her so much. I just know this card will put a smile on her face, and she wants me to teach her to color. I took her some coloring books and pencil crayons so she could do that while she is laid up. You don't have to think to color and it will pass the time with fun.

I have had several of you ask if I would do a video using the new Stampin' Blends. I did do one in our private FaceBook group with my Di's Country INKers team so if you join before October 15th when the pre-order ends you can re-watch that, otherwise I am going to wait until the Stampin' Blends are available for everyone. OK?

Country Livin'

Country Livin' Diana Gibbs Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends

Another fun stamp set that I have not used much and will now. I have used the boots cause I love me some cowboy boots, and with the cooler weather headed our way...soon I hope...I am excited to get my boots back on.

I colored the truck first from my stack of stamped images not knowing what I was going to do with it. Then I trimmed it down to fit on a note card and added the greeting on the bottom, what a great guy card right?  Tonight was my downline virtual meeting.  We do it every month, we had it a week later so that I would have my Stampin' Blends so I could give them a tips and tricks and a lesson on coloring with them.  What fun eh?  Are you wanting your own set of Stampin' Blends yet?  Are you wanting to join my amazing team?  Well don't wait, if you join my team before October 15 you can pick them in your kit. Are you sick of me saying that?
